Clean up day at the house

Getting started

The north side of the house does not see much sun, and the moss and mildew grows unabated. Every couple years I get up to clean it off. I am using a Jeep brand mildew remover, I’m on the last little bit. I ran out near the end and sprayed on some Spray-Nine cleaner. Honestly, it could of been the same product, same smell, same results.

With the north side spray, we wait.

Detergent applied, waiting 5-10 minutes for it to work.

While waiting I spot the supervisor has showed up on site.

Onward we go, slow and steady, making sure I have a good footing while walking on the metal roof. I made it a point to walk on the heads of the screws so the rubber boots have something to grip to. That solution is quite slippery once it starts running down the siding onto the roof.

All done now. Just taking a quick break before bringing it all back down to the ground.

Home ownership has its rewards but it also has its maintenance list of things that need to be done.
